Daily Commute XVIII (Weekend edition)

I needed some wire to hang some pictures, so I walked 4 blocks to General Lumber. I was the only one there, which happens a lot on Saturday mornings (they’re only open till 2), and which is weird. Most building supply stores are jammed all weekend.

I also like the fact that they are called General Lumber, but they don’t stock lumber. They used to, but had a massive fire, and the city wouldn’t renew their permit to reopen the lumber yard after they rebuilt. They kept the name anyway.
